Josie Long: Something Better

 

“An original and unflagging spirit, oozing enthusiasm and intellect… Josie Long builds delightful comedy worlds”  **** The Times

This is a show about optimism and hopefulness and about looking for people and things to look up to. It’s about wanting more from life than it might be up for giving out. It’s about struggling with realising what you are, who you are and what you can’t change about yourself, and about really feeling like an outsider for the first time.

I’m 34, I wanted to have kids by now, and be in love, and have a country that didn’t vote with the far right parties to march us all off a cliff. And be able to do all the awesome stuff that activists do, that I can’t do, too. I thought we would have won by now. And I wanted to be taller and better looking.

Following the international sell-out success of her previous show Cara Josephine across the UK, Europe, in Australia and New York, the star of BBC Radio 4’s Romance and Adventure, All of the Planet’s Wonders and presenter of Shortcuts, tours her eighth solo stand-up show nationwide.

“Every bit as funny as heartfelt”  **** The Guardian

“Josie Long is one of the finest stand-ups on the circuit. Razor sharp and mercilessly self-deprecating” – The Telegraph

“Disarmingly eloquent, verbally dexterous, a gem of the British comedy scene” – New York Times, Critics’ Pick

Advance tickets are available online now from TICKETWEB, SEE TICKET & LUNATICKETS (all subject to their booking fees).  Also available in person from the venue where there are no booking fees. All shows are £2 per ticket more if purchased on the door (subject to availability).

justin moorhouseFrom ‘Live at the Apollo’, ‘The News Quiz’ and ‘Fighting Talk’. A little slimmer but still as “belly laugh funny” (Manchester Evening News), everyone’s favourite northern charmer is back on the road and better than ever.

After touring last year’s show, of which The Guardian said “the amount of first-rate comic craft that goes into his deceptively simple routines is worthy of admiration” he’s had a think about people. And feelings. About people Justin knows, their feelings and how he feels about them. And they about him. It’ll be a (very) funny show. Promise.

zoe Lyons

Zoe returns with a brand new show after recent appearances on ‘Live at the Apollo’, ‘The John Bishop Show’ and winning the Chortle Best Comic award.

Thankfully Zoe has reached that point in her life when the thought of fitting in would be utterly terrifying. She is far happier being a Little Misfit.
